May 12th Awareness day 2012

Postby Fibroduck Foundation » Sun Mar 11, 2012 5:07 pm

For Awareness day we wanted to create something new. We have a challenge for you this year, it's one everyone can do, even from your bed.

The 'Because I want to' campaign is born. :-D

Since getting Fibromyalgia we all have something we used to love doing but due to our health we are no longer able to do it. The challenge is to get as many people as possible to join in. Your families, friends and workmates can also join in.

We want you to print off a copy of our poster, in the space provided please write the one thing you'd really love to be able to do again. friends/family/workmates can write what they want to see you doing again.

You can be standing up, sitting down or laying in bed. You can be dressed in a super hero costume or still in your pj's, it really doesn't matter.

Then get someone to take a photo of you holding your poster. Upload your poster to Twitter or Facebook and tweet/share the slogan that's on your poster. Don't worry, we'll give you full, easy to follow instructions further down.

For those who have no printer access:
Send us a pre paid stamped addresses envelope and we'll send you back a poster:
Fibroduck Foundation Po Box 575, Kemp House, 152-160 City Road, London, EC1V 2NX

Instructions:
1) Download our A4 sized poster free from our store, then print off a copy.

2) In the space provided on the poster, fill in what you'd like to say. Then ask someone to take a photo of you holding your poster.

If you can manage to get your fibroduck in on the photo as well, then we can use the photos on both websites.

Then:

Twitter:
Attach your photo to a tweet, then add this wording to the tweet box:
I support @FibroduckFound + #Fibro research- because I want to .......... (fill in with the same words you put on your poster) #spoonies #may12th #fibroduck http://www.fibroduckfoundation.com

Please use the whole tweet and see if we can get trending again whilst raising awareness worldwide.

Facebook:
Post your photos to our walls and attach the following wording to the photo:
I support the Fibroduck Foundation and UK Fibromyalgia research. Because I want to ................ (fill in with the same words you put on your poster) ) #spoonies #may12th #@FibroduckFoundation http://www.fibroduckfoundation.com

You can start sending in your photos now. This campaign will continue running once awareness day is over, we hope many people will join in to help us show exactly why we need research here in the UK.

Happy May 12th
Fibroduck Team :-D

I discovered today that I had forgot to set the number of allowed downloads for this poster. This in turn stopped people downloading it, alll is fixed now and you should be able to download it. I've set it for 10,000 downloads. Please take part and help us make fibro more visible out there :-)
